Odin Sphere PS4 - what an absolute treat. The visuals are impressive and the disgaea lite menu stuff adds an essential metagame of cooking, gardening and Alchemizing. Theres a rhythm to the combat which is kind of like diablo of all games and 5 hours in and cant wait to play some more tomorrow. I know its been rated highly by Pushsquate already and its easily the best 2d sidescrolling arpg Ive ever played (its the only one I think). The story has a decent over arching story but its definity rooted in the last gens of gaming.

ARMS - Easily my favourite switch game. We are having a tournament on new years eve - bringing back memories of the mario kart snes new years party when I was dead young. I wouldnt buy it as a single player, you need 2 sets of controllers to enjoy it properley. And play it with motion controls that actually work amazingly.

Got myself stuck into The Witcher 3 - this is going to be on my New Years list to finish this year. Only a few hours in so hard to tell. I have started the game in Death March difficulty which may be a mistake as combat seems pretty challenging but I guess it is teaching me the ropes. Anyone got any advice?

Gravity Rush 2. There's so much in the game that turns me off (bugs, bad controls, pop in), but for some reason I keep getting back. And that's because of the game's unresistable charm.

All this GOTY talk has me motivated to play all these games. I was able to sink my teeth into a couple more today —
I started Gravity Rush 2 and so far so good. It’s a bit of a shock coming from NieR to this much more light-hearted feeling game. Kat is cutesy and fun, whereas the protagonists in NieR are more serious and ruthless and the story more somber than GR feels so far.
I was enjoying my opening hours of GR2, but felt like I needed a break from open world, mission-driven, marker-chasing, combat-centric experiences and wanted to chill with a low intensity story based game so I switched over to What Remains of Edith Finch. This is a game I bought on sale purely due to the GOTY hype it has created. I was not disappointed. I was mesmerized for 3 hours straight and skipped meals to complete it because it was so immersive. Basically it is Gone Home on steroids, with a better story and much better gameplay and presentation, but it’s the closest thing I can compare it to. But that comparison doesn’t do it justice. It is much more unique than a standard walking sim. It deserves the praise it gets, and I think it would nestle in at #5 on my GOTY list now. As for GR2, at 2 hrs in its too early to tell, but it is looking pretty good so far. It has an alluring captivation all its own.

Everybody's Golf. It was one of the many games I got for Christmas and I've found myself totally addicted to it.

All these great games in my backlog and I'm playing GTA V's campaign again. Mate of mine finally gave it back, then admitted he'd sold it ages ago and bought me a new copy the other day! So that's who's still buying GTA V.
I'm enjoying it a lot more second time around. Also, it was four years ago, so I've forgotten most of it.

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@Gremio108 Ha, ha! No way! He borrowed it and then sold it? Wow, I guess he was hoping you’d just forget that he borrowed it.

@Gremio108 Heard something similar on PlayStation Access as part of the 'gaming confessions' segment. Someone wrote in confessing that they borrowed their mates game and then sold it.
The Access team told him to come clean and buy the mate another copy.
Maybe you're that mate ?

@Fight_Teza_Fight Ha, maybe I am!

I only asked for it back because I was curious to see the snow on GTA Online at Christmas. I feel a bit bad because I wouldn't have rushed him if I'd known he had to buy it back. Also, I didn't actually get around to playing it at Christmas... He'd had it for about a year though, so I don't feel too bad!

@Th3Solution Unfortunately for him, I never forget....

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

I actually just rebought GTA V myself on PS4, no it was my own copy if you were wondering. I traded it in awhile back for something that I don't even remember what now. I bought it at launch, got half way through it and honestly I shouldn't have bought it then as I was coming off of just beating it on the 360 so I was burnt on it and going through it a second time so soon and the fact it took up so much room on my base stock PS4 hdd.... So yeah I traded it in.

Been icthing to play it again since it's been years now and I saw it at a local thrift store for $5.

Started playing Arkham Knight today after having watched S2 and S3 of Gotham and gotten myself really interested into playing this series again. The opening to the game was pretty grim, not gonna lie, but it has piqued my interest.

I have to admit that the Batmobile mechanic is pretty cool but I can imagine it getting pretty stale after awhile. The combat feels as natural and great as ever, although I was rather rusty at it in the beginning. But when it finally clicked, it made me remember just how amazing the combat is in these games. Using the cape to stun enemies across a small area, then beat the crap out of them really fast while countering those who try to break the combo and then perform special takedowns after x8 hits is just as satisfying as ever. I could literally fly around the city and do this all day. It's so good.

I'm kinda shocked though at seeing how much freaking DLC there is for this game. I believe there are like 7-8 extra story episodes or something (and 20 costume/challenge packs)? Took me quite a while to download everything (bought the GOTY edition). Disappointed that it didn't come on disc but hey, what can you do.

Playing through Dragons dogma and loving it. The climbing mechanic is such a great idea to add to an rpg.

@KratosMD I've been playing through Arkham Knight as well. I'm enjoying it, though I can see why people have some issues with it. My main issue with the Batmobile is it's control. The button layout for it is weird, and muscle memory from multiple racing games bites me alot while controlling it, at least as a car, anyway. I haven't had any issue with the drone battles yet.

And yes, there's a ton of DLC. I've only gotten whatever's free and thanks to some luck, the Harley Quinn pack, since the coupon was unused.

@KratosMD @DerMeister I think when I played Arkham Knight, it got the Assassins Creed Black Flag treatment from me — meaning I had a bit of fatigue from all the previous series entries leading up to it so even though I think it’s a good game, I couldn’t enjoy it which led me to abandon it just a few hours in. I bet if I try it again, then I’d like it more now. I still have my copy.

@DerMeister Yeah I'm struggling with the controls of the Batmobile as well. It doesn't really make sense to have one of the triggers being gas while having one of the front buttons being reverse. It really messes with my mind. But I think I can adapt to it if given some time.

Also, according to HowLongToBeat, the DLC story episodes are apparently not even that long. Most of them are like a half hour long, which make them sound pretty pointless to play through. Only 'A Matter of Family' and 'Season of Infamy' are around two hours each, which is a pretty decent length.

@Th3solution Yeah, the game is pretty much on the same level as Arkham City in terms of gameplay so it can get pretty stale if you play the games back to back. But it's the larger open world and Batmobile that makes it different from that game. Arkham Knight feels much more like a sandbox now thanks to things like races with the Batmobile, or performing stunt jumps with it, or just driving around the city and destroying everything in your path. It's basically GTA now and I kinda like it. It's definitely more ambitious now.

Oh man, I'm so jealous i wish i could start that game afresh again! On of my faves this gen. Think i must have racked up 200+ hours. And that is without starting the expansions. 😲

Tips: don't be afraid to knock down the difficulty. Unless your are going for the trophy. Make sure you have the right sword equipped. Steel Weapons are used for fighting humans, elves, and most creatures that are not considered to be monsters. Silver Swords on the other hand are almost exclusively used upon Creatures that are considered to be Monsters.

Make sure you use the right potions and oils for the fight ahead. Make sure you dibthis before starting combat.

There is also some tips from this very site!

So I checked and there’s not a dedicated Gravity Rush 2 thread to rant on, but I don’t think it really warrants a new thread just to say .... I’ve been playing GR2 most of the day today and I am so annoyed at the servers being shut down in 2 weeks. First off, it’s just plain lame for Sony to do it when the game is less than a year old. (Yes, I understand the game didn’t sell well, but it still irks me) Secondly, I had heard the online stuff was not that big of a deal and wouldn’t be missed. And I guess I can kind of agree, but the online functions are actually a bigger part of the game than I was expecting. There is a fair amount of focus put on it and the challenges and treasure hunts are actually pretty fun. The rewards for the Dusty tokens are actually fun as well. So now, thirdly, this whole server time-limit thing has completely changed how I’m approaching the game. I’m rushing through sections, skipping side quests, just so I can advance the game to sections where I can earn more online Dusty points before they go away. I’m not sure it is making me enjoy it less, but it just gripes me that I can’t take my time and soak in all these huge areas and crazy side missions and conversations. I feel like I’m missing things as I rush through. (Haha, no pun intended)
I know, I know, ... it’s my fault for waiting this long to play it, but it still makes me grumpy about this whole thing.
Okay. Rant over.
Great game, btw.

@Th3solution That's a shame about Gravity Rush 2 as i really enjoyed the demo. Heard about the servers closing down but didn't realise it affected the game so much.

@JohnnyShoulder Well, I probably was drifting into a little bit of over-reaction there. I posted that comment after several hours of playing and my frustration was a little amplified. The game is perfectly functional without the online activities. I wouldn’t necessarily let that deter you from getting the game if you were considering it. It is foremost a single player open world fantasy/action game with mild rpg type character ability leveling mechanics. There is a ton of content, main story and side quests. I’m only about 6 hrs in, but the world is enormous so far. Amazing verticality to the maps. The online part is sharing challenges with other players to beat your time or defeated enemy count in certain missions, sharing and rating each other’s photos, and going on treasure hunts through these large maps where you try to find a treasure box within a certain time frame with the help of clues another player sends you online in the form of a photo. It’s kind of like that non-synchronous online play that has been popular with the Souls games and like what was done in NieR, Persona 4&5, etc. The game doesn’t need the online but it is icing on the cake.
I guess if there never was an online part to the game in the first place I’d be fine with the game the way it is. It’s just that they obviously put quite a bit of thought and effort into developing that component, and it works out well, so it is a shame they just decided to chuck it so quick. Imagine Dark Souls without the online sharing part or NieR without the players corpses you can reanimate if you want — the games perfectly fine without them, but you miss part of the charm of the game. Of course this is still just my early impressions as the game is evidently about a 40-50 hr game.
